Bombay High Court rules against Maharashtra RERA in first petition tried in court 17.1.2018 DNA: Top News
The first petition, challenging an order passed by Maharashtra Real Estate Regulatory Authority, was on Tuesday decided by the Bombay High Court. It quashed and set aside an order issued by the authority which had upheld a city builders' claim that his project started in 2009, was delayed due to change of law, administrative conflicts and "incorrect classification of the plot as CRZ II'' —reasons beyond his control. Hence, he is not liable to pay compensation to a flat purchaser. A division bench of Justice RM Borde and Justice Rajesh Ketkar, while quashing the order passed on November 28, 2017, said the order is illegal and the authority will have to reconsider the petitioners claim and pass a reasoned order. Advocate Abhinav Chandrachud and Advocate Mustafa Kachwala appearing for the petitioners, flats buyers Sharan Lund and Vandana Lund argued that the authority had simply copied the arguments made by the developer in the order, without giving any of its own reasoning. The order, passed by member ...

SC uphelds Kerala HC order imposing Rs 1 Cr fine on DLF 10.1.2018 General News
The Supreme Court today upheld the Kerala High Court order imposing a fine of Rs 1 crore on real estate major DLF for constructing around 180 luxury flats along the banks of eco-sensitive Chilavannur backwaters near Kochi in Kerala. A bench comprising Justices R F Nariman and S K Kaul, however, set aside the findings of the high court on the leaglity of the structures built by the real estate firm. "In conclusion, we set aside the findings of the impugned order while sustaining the fine of Rs 1 crore with the direction for strict adherence to the norms in future and avoidance of such contradictions by the authorities.
